Apologies for the delay replying, I've been traveling a bitů

What I haven't been able to do is get either of the drum sequencers to control my Yamaha RX5 or Beats. I can clock them with silent way just fine, no sequencing though. A friend and I were able to get it to work with his setup using the drum sequencer to control his DMX via his midisport so I'm assuming the problem is with how I'm setting up silent way+numerology in live. Has anyone had any experiences with this?
I don't know the ES40+ESX8CV combo very well, but I have setup an ES3 & a gate expander (I think it is the ESX8 Gate, but I don't have it with me). It was a bit tricky to setup, and Os can probably help you more there than I can -- check for his videos for setup in Live -- Numerology will be similar, same MIDI setup, just a different host. The rough outline goes like this:

- Use the 'appropriate' SW plugin -- not the voice controller, but I'm not sure which one for the ESX8CV -- ask Os if the ESX8 manual isn't clear about it.

- You should be able to use that plugin to convert 8 consecutive MIDI notes to gate values (for triggering drums) on the 8 CV ports.

I'm sure there is a simple solution but I can't see anything in preferences or anything like that. A greyed out Silent Way does show up in a midi drop down menu if I have Live and the standalone N4 program open but it doesn't do anything.
This sounds like you have PT already running when you start Numerology -- when that is the case Numerology starts in ReWire mode -- you should see the indicator for it in N4's transport. The clue here is that the SW plugin UI is opening in PT -- that is normal when Numerology is running in ReWire mode. Two easy fixes: Don't run PT until after N4 is started, or in N4's prefs, Installation, click to un-install the ReWire driver, then restart N4.
